A Humble Beast in the Lions Den

Justin Walters

JACKSON, Tenn. - Every Friday when the Lions take the field, Trinity Christian Academic fans expect an offensive clinic.

Those predictions emerge from the shoulders of TCA's quarterback Kyle Akin.

"I know my receivers are going to win one on ones," said the junior quarterback. "My position is to give it to the athletes."

A year makes a huge difference. TCA's 2012 campaign finished with a 7-5 record.

With an average of over 40 points per game this season, the Lions stand as the only undefeated team in the Jackson area.

"Maturity has helped me realize when and when not to throw it."

Akin has brought last year's interception total of 14 down to four. In addition to his improved decision making, the young quarterback has also surpassed last season rushing touchdown total.

"I'm hoping no one can match up to us. When the day comes, we will find out how well put together our offense is."
